What We're Doing

CREATING AT THE INTERSECTION OF ART, SCHOLARSHIP & ACTIVISM

We develop engaging interdisciplinary performance work for theatres and alternative spaces. 

We have a specific interest in female-identifying stories and a desire to generate work about and alongside communities.

Our practice is sometimes text-to-stage, sometimes process-based and curatorial, combining elements of theatre, dance, film, soundscape and installation.

Our Guiding Principles

THE VALUES THAT INFORM OUR WORK

      We believe that performance art should make people think   

                            

make them ask questions, reconsider their perspectives and biases, and drive them towards action

 

                                            We believe that performance art should unite                                                   

empower diverse voices, bring people together, build new communities, and foster feelings of inclusion and belonging 

 

We wish to develop work with an impact   

                                                

through academic research, personal encounters, auto-ethnographic approaches and interdisciplinary exploration​

 

We wish to develop work that communicates true stories and experiences   

with honesty, integrity, and intention

 

We maintain that performance art can take a variety of forms     

                             

We are interested in creating across a broad spectrum of styles and genres. Our current focus is on curatorial, installation and community-based work, as well as work in alternative spaces

By the Light of the Moon     2019-2023

We find Lila alone in a hospital for the criminally insane in 1928. Abandoned by her family, society, and her only friend in the asylum, she is forced to face her deepest secrets and the dark reality of the events leading up to her imprisonment.

Behind Glass
2019

An auto-ethnographic performance work

that uses movement, spoken word poetry, soundscape and audience engagement to explore questions of identity.

 

Inspired by "grab her by the pussy" politics, the murder of Lyra McKee and the daily frustration of conflicting and unachievable societal expectations, the piece gives audiences an intimate glimpse into the mind of a silent woman with a lot to say.

The Sonnet Response Series
2020

154 participants transform Shakespeare’s sonnets into personal, interdisciplinary creative acts.

 

The work is interested in exploring how to link individuals and communities in isolation and how to generate creative work outside of our typical models of in-person rehearsal and collaboration, grounding participants in a global artistic community and encouraging the creation of new work in crisis.

Choreography Confined
2020

An experiment in movement, shared experiences and shifting perspectives, offering opportunities for creative exploration working with, rather than against, spacial constraints. 

The product of a two-week devised collaboration project resulting in an award-winning dance film.

Doorstep Dances
2021

to the point of disappearance
2021

an interdisciplinary live art installation series which examines the historical incarceration of unwed Mothers in Ireland, the fates of their children and the contemporary implications of this history.

The Midnight Run

Led a participatory shadow theatre performance event interested in the possibilities of collaborative storytelling, light, urban space and myth.

It gathers strangers and local artists together to explore, play and create, whilst the city sleeps. The Midnight Run aims to break down social barriers and provide a platform for established and emerging creatives, bringing moments of genuine interactive creativity.
